Originally posted by Gobie Here's a question for you guys. I am planning on trying to take swimming lessons over the winter. I can swim, but not very well. What skills would you recommend I ask the instructor to teach me? Breathing for sure. But are there are other skills? Different strokes? Right now, when swim across the pool, it's kind of like a sustained drowning that's occasionally interrupted by a wall

 

hey gobie

i am melting too so feel your pain (yes it can get hot in england!!!!!)

as for swimming: i'd get the coach to work on body position in the water so the breathing comes more naturally and the sustained drowning ends! if you are flatter in the water everything works better and you even have to kick less to stay afloat, which is therefore less knackering, and the sustained drowning ends!

IF you are eventually going for open water swimming and have improved your stroke, as the coach to teach you some sighting techniques; this will probably involve a bottle on the pool side. but tbh i'd work on the ending sustained drowning for now

 

good luck and enjoy!

It's a tad warm here as well... personally, I'm thinking the Memphis area has split off of planet Earth and is orbiting the sun somewhere inside of Mercury's orbit...

Down to 270.0 this week.

Diet isn't the best, and I'm slowly increasing my bike and walk distances. I'm also doing light bodyweight exercises and my 2 youngest (girls 9 & 6) join in. Right now everything is going to plan since I have no plans for any events until next year.

So... for this week, keep building walk & bike distances, increase workout exercise regimen, and keep an eye on diet.

It looks like you are doing great. Now, send me some of that juju. I am still trying to get it all together from my doctor snafu. 7 months of the wrong meds (serum) have kicked my tail. I keep starting over and it gets old. But then, there really isn't much of an alternative, is there?

Well... life kicked me in the nuts again.

My mom's finally settled down and seeking care (health related). Over the last few months we started with degenerative rheumatoid arthritis, then threw a little COPD and emphysema into the mix. Last weekend, we went to her place (she's in OK, I'm in Memphis) for a needle biopsy of a tumor in her lung (high risk location), aaaaaaaaand... Cancer. So, she has a PET scan scheduled and of course they have to figure out if it's operable...

If any of you remember my original post (2014?), I made mention of the 7 calcified tumors in my own lungs and the hullabaloo that caused since I've never smoked a cigarette (and only taken 1 bong hit) in my life. No matter how vehement her denials may be... I've seen this coming.

I want a new bike, but I still need to get off my arse again and get back to work. Yeah, no segue. I have set goals. Memphis in May sprint, and Mighty Mite sprint 2019. I have times to beat.

Wow That is a whole lot of life on your plate all at one time. It looks like things are gonna get tough. Remember to take care of yourself

Thanks Robin

I'm starting to think we've been abandoned again, lol!!

I've updated my log for the week. I'm working on more time on the bike (even if it's the exercycle with the torture saddle). I'm also starting to walk during lunch for 2 reasons: 1) If I can train during lunch, that frees up time in the evening. 2) I get an hour lunch. I don't need/want/etc an hour. So, if I can head out for about 30 mins (Tues & Thurs), I can not only increase distance, but train tired. Not a true brick, but definitely in the same vein.

that's a really good way to get some extra exercise in - well done! i'm just getting back into the swing of things so riding has restarted and the past two days i've done a cheeky extra 3 miles on my road bike after i get home from work on my hybrid - it's been fun! food wise i am just getting my head back in the game but even daring to weight myself yet

Thanks Sappho.

I forgot to add one thing. I've started a bodyweight program/app called "home workout" it's pretty thorough.

I may look into that. I have a TRX at home and need to start using it again. It is good because you can increase the intensity pretty much infinitely.

Guess what I did last weekend?

I did a triathlon. A local sprint that is rated as fairly hard. I was near the last, but not the very last. With my lack of training, I am pretty proud of myself.

Interesting development today. My last A1C was a massive 10.6. If ya'll don't know, the "normal" range is from 4.0-6.0. Had my check-up today and... 6.2. MASSIVE drop. Talk about incentive to stick with it, lol!!

No problem.

No training for me the last 4 days. I live in a 200 + year old house. I am painting the front porch. That involves caulking, 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of paint. It is bead board and old so it sucks up the paint. 2 more days and I''ll be done. (of course I could only paint 3 - 5 hours a day before I seize up, so it is gonna take a while).
